Since each bead is 1/4 inch in diameter, the necklace will have 4 beads per inch. Multiplying 4 by 24 gives you 96 beads all together.

Divide 96 by 3 to find the number of each color of beads she'll use.

32 beads of each color

each group of beads is 3/4 inch long and 24 divided by 3/4 = 32 groups or 32 of each bead
